Default Re: Reccomend and thermostats??????

I have a huge cage so I use the 150 watt emitter. I have actually thought about adding another 150 watt but then it might be too warm. My cage is a Marchioro Tommy 120 which is 2 x 4 x 22" I think. Both types of controller are good ones. I have heard good things about both. I just got the Zilla one cuz it was cheaper at the time.

Another thing to consider when getting an emitter is the temperature of your house. If you keep it at 68F the emitter will need to provide much more heat than someone who keeps their house at 72F. The ReptiTemp 500R has a dial that you rotate to reach the desired temperature. It doesn't have actual degrees. Ideally, the dial should be about half way as that will give you the most adjustment, either up or down.

The problem I have with the 150 for my application is that I have to have the dial just about to the lowest it will go which doesn't give me any adjustment to go lower.

Not sure if all that made any sense.
